Peter Michael Toohey
April 20, 1954, Blayney, New South Wales
Right hand Bat
Peter Toohey was a diminutive middle-order batsman from New South Wales who played 15 Tests for Australia in the Packer years. A right-hander with a touch of Doug Walters about him, he started well in 1977-78, with two fine half-centuries on debut against India at Brisbane, and a magnificent double of 122 and 97 in Jamaica, just weeks after he was hit in the face by an Andy Roberts bouncer. But England exposed him the following winter, and in five Tests, Toohey made two 0s, three 1s, and only one fifty.
